Black Skimmer Workshop


  • Southern New Jersey (map)

Available from 6/1/19 thru 8/31/19 - you choose the date.

This workshop is for 1-on-1 or with up to 2 people. To find out prices and how this workshop is run or to reserve your spot visit http://rayhennessy.com/species-workshops/

With their unique look and fishing behavior Black Skimmers are a favorite to photograph.  They are also incredibly challenging which is always fun.  Join me at a colony to photograph them sitting around and hopefully skimming.

I also have an option to get in the water to photograph these birds as they skim and fly around you. You can choose to do this option instead of the colony or you can combine this with a visit to the colony as well for an added fee of $80.

The photos below are taken at the location where you photograph them from in the water as they fly around you. It’s an incredible experience and it’s recommended to have a wet suit or something similar to cover your body in this water.
